Microsoft has not forced anyone to upgrade (Windows NT 4 is still used!). Those that are still using Windows XP in a business environment are most likely stilling using IE6 nonetheless making IE9 irreverent. Support for whatever does not exist forever, no company can afford to support everything they create forever.
Very well said.

You're right. They aren't technically forcing anyone to upgrade. But if if you want to use IE9, then yes, you have no choice but to upgrade, and that is almost the same as being forced to upgrade.

Your want, is not your need. You force yourself to upgrade (of your own free will) to satisfy your want. Again, not Microsoft's responsibility. I want the new Playstation 3 games on my Playstation 2, why Sony...why must I buy a PS3!

I dont understand why the use of IE9 is that big of a deal....its not even available...and yes, if its that necessary, you're going to have to upgrade, but no one is holding a gun to your head...

Exactly. I believe a lot of people here just feel the need to argue about something.

I mean, if its not this. Its about which browser is better, which anti-virus is better, or should we trust Coco15 with our toasters. These arguments happen all the time and no one ever.. EVER wins.

Might as well save your breath. Some people simply do not posses the ability to look past self, and walk in the shoes of the less fortunate. Or consider the small businesses that simply cannot upgrade their OS [for whatever reason].

After all, if they upgraded, then EVERYONE should. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see right through that line of thinking, and where it comes from.

I can see why Microsoft isn't supporting backwards compatibility, it's just easier to make it not. And from their view it will encourage some to go with windows 7, giving them some profit and make it easier to focus on their latest products instead of the old.

Now on the note that IE9 forces people to upgrade I have this to say. The new browser is a want, not a need. You don't NEED IT, you WANT it. So if you want it you will upgrade. If you don't want it you won't. If you cannot understand this difference there is no need to discuss it further.

Now do I think XP is obsolete, NO. For this reason, there are still many programs that are not compatible with vista and 7. For example in my profession there are several programs that only work on XP. I wish they worked on 7, but they don't. So I still need XP. At least until these programs are updated, but i doubt that will be anytime soon. But I would gladly welcome the updates.
